  1. This is where we take any and everything needing this kind of attention! And we have for as far back as I can remember! Always an excellent job… and Tony will try something even if it looks hopeless.. I’m crazy about them.. such an important business… they are like “artists of repair “…
    They’re no nonsense…just there to get your job done… how GREAT is this! This is me, Gwen… want to know more… just ask me!

  2. Im able to keep shoes a lot longer because of their maintenance capabilities. They have helped me on several occasions when I’ve had other type work needed, sych as nylon and thick fabric. Very comforting knowing Double-O-Sole is around.

  3. The only place I’ve gone for shoe or any leather or bag repair since I moved here 11 years ago. Hands down, quality work. You’re treated with kindness when you walk out and you feel like part of the family when you leave. Highly recommend! Appreciate the feature piece on them.

  4. In this “throw-away” society, I’m surprised they have enough business to stay afloat. With this train-wreck of an economy though, I bet their business even increases with people not being able to afford to spend as much on new things.

  5. Great Family business. They have weathered the COVID storm. Instead of buying new loafers, they make my favorite loafers new again. They are very good at what they do. And do it in a very timely fashion.
